Armand Schwerner was an avant-garde Jewish-American poet. Schwerner’s performances of The Tablets series were well known; according to the New York Times, Schwerner could produce many distinct voices from one breath to the next. He could also use his mastery of rhythm (he was an accomplished clarinetist) to create an audible stir in an audience, which at times made it seem that his poems were speaking from the floor, the balcony and the rafters all at once.

POFOD
When I first saw many of the works that make up Schwerner's TABLETS sequence in Conjunctions magazine back in the 80s, I was hooked: the compelling and playful invention of mythic stories, invented-archeological mock-transcriptions, and odd iconography seemed quite fascinating, and still does. I was saddened to hear the news last year that Schwerner had died, especially since I had been waiting years for someone to finally collect all of these odd and intriguing sections into a single volume.

In the Tablets, Schwerner is by turns experimental, ironic, satiric, comic, reflexive, and serious. The criptic nature of the Tablets may turn some readers off, but for anyone interested in getting to know American poetry after 1945, the book is a must. Its right up there with "A", "The Cantos", and "Maximus". A faux archeology of consciousness. An altogether beautiful reading experience.
